We are talking when the word comes up. Ajabaja. I think she is calling me this, or herself, I am not quite sure. What is Ajabaja? It is Swedish, a very mild sweet and harmless form for naughty she explains. And I am already thinking that yes, I must write 100 words about this Ajabaja, this youngster with round cheeks who is perpetually sucking on a candy bar, who walks in heavy shoes and carries his books in a strap. I am thinking he has blonde hair, and his nose is running. His mother thinks about him as he walks.
